Canadian Symposium for Computational Neuroscience

Oct. 26, 2021 - Oct. 27, 2021

Introducing Campus Alberta Neuroscience's first Canadian Symposium for Computational Neuroscience

This national symposium will connect trainees, researchers, and industry representatives from across the country to share knowledge, research, and innovation.

The programming includes panel discussions, research presentations, an interactive workshop, a facilitated researcher collaboration session, and a keynote presentation.

The symposium has four themes:

  • Biological Computation
  • Dimensionality Reduction
  • Network Neuroscience
  • Information Decoding from Neural Networks

Speakers for each session can be found here.

The Interactive Workshop is sponsored and led by the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute (Amii) and will provide attendees with an understanding of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the real world. No prior knowledge in coding or programming is needed! Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about how Amii researchers use machine learning to aid in the diagnosis of mental disorders, like Schizophrenia. Principal Researcher Sunil Kalmady and Amii Research Fellow Russ Greiner will give a short presentation on their work and answer any questions you may have.

There is also an opportunity to present your own research through Lightning Talk presentations. These presentations are available at the Postdoc, PhD, Masters, and Undergraduate levels. Submission guidelines can be found on our website.

More details to be announced as they are confirmed.

For more information, please visit the Campus Alberta Neuroscience website.
